Leslie Mountjoy, Registered Psychotherapist, MDiv, BRE, SSW

Let me be candid for a second: If you’re reading my biography, you are likely considering therapy and looking at your options. I just want to pause there and validate how difficult it is to be in that position. While it would be amazing if people came to therapy for maintenance, the usual case is that people seek my services when they are reaching a struggle or crisis. I know first hand how vulnerable it is to take the leap and decide to take control of your situation. I want you to know first and foremost that I appreciate and honour the delicate place you are in.

Please take some time to read my FAQ page to better understand how I work, and what to expect as we begin the therapeutic process together.

From a young age, I was drawn to people and their pain. I tried to make sense of the world and why people behave and think as they do. I knew intuitively that many of our dysfunctional behaviours stemmed from a place of pain, and I always tried to understand why. The “why” allowed me to understand our broken parts and encourage others to overcome those burdens, and so began a love for helping others.

This natural curiosity brought me to Fleming College where I completed my Social Service Worker diploma. I was in awe of the knowledge that I had gained, and the new understandings that I had into people and why we function as we do. I paused my professional life to have my family, then dove back into school in 2018 to get my undergrad. In 2020, I began the Masters of Divinity in Clinical Counselling degree at Tyndale University. After enthusiastically devouring all the knowledge I could get, I finished my program in December 2022. Along The Way Counselling came to be in January 2023. Though I am new to the field, I bring years of personal experience and knowledge to the table.

I love therapy. I am amazed at the strength and resiliency I see in my clients everyday. Nothing makes me more excited then watching clients connect dots, meet goals, overcome obstacles and reach their potential. I work from a “the client is the expert” perspective, recognizing that you know you best. I get the honour of walking alongside you as you work towards your goals, and I am very thankful for each person who trusts me with a part of their journey along the way through life.

Personally, I am an enthusiastic person. I have been married for almost 15 years (and yes, a proud marriage therapy survivor!) and we have four children. I was born and raised in Ontario, in both Toronto and Bobcaygeon which gave me an appreciation for both city and country life. I settled in Port Hope, where I am in the process of finding space for a local office. In the meantime, I have office space in Courtice at Evergreen Counselling Centre and can work virtually for those from afar. I love being outdoors, playing with my two golden retrievers, trying new recipes, hosting friends and family, and a warm cup of tea on my back deck.


I look forward to getting to know you. If you have any questions, please send me a message and I'm happy to answer them.

Education and Work Experience


January 2023 - Current

I am registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). Having completed my degree, I moved from intern to "Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)" status. This means that I was qualified to practice, but had to write and pass the Canadian Professional Standard for Counselling and Psychotherapy (CPSCP): Entry to Practice Competency Assessment exam. I passed this with the highest marks in my sitting in October 2023, and transitioned to Registered Psychotherapist #12953. 


May 2022 - December 2022.

I completed my internship with the supervision of Susan Kay. During this time we created a great supervision relationship and I decided to return to Evergreen as an Independent Contractor following the completion of my degree. 


February 2022

Prepare/Enrich is a diagnostic inventory program. This inventory will assess relationship scales in communication, conflict resolution, finance and relationship roles. It will assess personality scales dealing with personal stress, style and habits. It will assess couple and family scales dealing with couple and family life experiences. I am trained in this program and can use it in therapy.
